I'm getting a line that isn't printing through my printing from a Fuji Xerox DocuPrint C3055 DX


Possible reasons are: 1.empty toner cartridge, 2.dirt under one of the toner cartridge's developing roller, 3. dirt on the primary charge roller in the drum cartridge, 4. obstacle on the laser path.
Replace the empty toners first and try printing again. Follow the next steps if it didn't solve the problem.
Print a test page with 4 stripes across the page - black, cyan, yellow and magenta. See if all have the missing toner line or only one of them. If the white stripe is going trough only one color, inspect the cartridge with that color. It has to have the same stripe on the developing roller. See if there is some dust beneath it that makes the stripe and clean it with a brush. If the stripe is across all colors, then inspect the drum unit. The drum itself has to be evenly shining on the light. If there are uneven matte tracks on it, consider replacing. There should be a gap somewhere for the laser beam to pass and the drum is visible trough it. Look trough it for obstacles like piece of paper or hair. The primary charge roller has to be close to that gap inside, touching the drum. Look for dirt on it. Clean if possible.
Toner cartridges last approx. 6500 pages. The drum cartridge lasts between 14 000 and 28 000 pages depending on the color use.

We have a ricoh FW770 that keeps leaving toner on the print, we have to keep cleaning the drum in order to get a good copy


Hi,
probably you need to change the drum cleaning blade. Its a long silicon rubber stripe that cleans the excessive toner from the drum surface.Also replace the developer units seals to prevent the developer and toner leak.

Hope that helps.

The Print has white stripes


White stripes are caused by dust and toner powder on the scanner window, which is situated in the bottom of the printer, under the drum unit. Open the printer, remove the drum unit and using a soft cloth with a little meths wipe the window clean of toner and dust. It's quite dark inside the printer, so use a torch to find the glass panel (only about 10mm deep x the width of the drum).

White stripes on the printed text


The drum sounds like it is failing. This should be replaced when you change the toner cartridge. Have you got a spare cartridge you can test with?

Black stripe and white stripe on copies


Black stripes can be down to dirty optics, unplug the copier and remove the glass, then clean all mirrors and the glass itself. If this does not resolve the problem, it will be the drum cleaning blade that has worn and will nedd replaceing.

White stripes on pages copied from ARM 205


If you changed your developer? Or did you change the Toner Cartridge?
White stripe? Check the charge on the drum, it might have a piece of dust on it.
take the charge out, (dont take it apart) hold it up to some light, you might see some dust particles hanging in the grid. If so, rub very lightly with finger, do not use a cloth to clean. Blow it with a can of air.
Clean the transfer charge as well
Usually replace those as it is such a pain to clean on the smaller machines.
if you need any further help let me know
Thanks

NOT PRINTING CORRECTLY


Try shaking your cartridge to distribute the toner in the drum. That should help.
